Changing lives one Dress  at a time. 




Project Formal is a community initiative based in Escambia County, FL. with the aim to provide formal wear for students in the Northwest Florida School District who need assistance with school dance attire and accessories.

Every student should have an opportunity to attend a high school formal occasion and this is why Project Formal exists.  Lack of inappropriate attire due to household hardships, trauma or challenges shouldn't keep students from missing these types of memorable events during  their high school years.

In 2021, Natalie Lambert and her amazing team of volunteers founded the idea and Project Formal planted its roots in Santa Rosa County. Since 2021, Project Formal has expanded to serving all of Northwest Florida High School students.  As of 2022, Project Formal falls collectively under 4EVR DEZ, Inc.  


4EVR DEZ is a 501c3 organization promoting student inclusivity.  The organization promotes projects throughout Northwest Florida to enrich lives of children during struggles most families can't imagine.  Every student deserves memorable moments that will last a lifetime.  


4EVR DEZ, Inc. is honored to be heading up Project Formal.
